The open beta of Battlefield 2042 release date and potential early access have been the subject of a lot of interest among the player base. After all, it is “customary” to have a beta in games like these, but EA has been surprisingly taciturn about it. So, when is the beta going to come out, and how can you get into it early? Well, we’ll be sharing everything we know so far in our Battlefield 2042 Open Beta Release Date & Early Access guide.
Battlefield 2042 Beta Release Date
The release date of the Battlefield 2042 open beta has not been announced yet, as of writing this article. The only thing we know for certain is that the developers have confirmed that there will be some sort of beta in September, but so far, there’s been not even a whisper of when exactly. Of course, we’ll be sure to update this guide and let you know as soon as more info comes out. That said, we do already know how you can get into the beta early, and it’s as EA as it can get: you have to pay up front for little more than promises of the future. Enough of me waxing poetic, let’s get into the meat of it.
Battlefield 2042 Beta Early Access & Sign Up
To get early access to the Battelfield 2042 open beta, you have to pre-order the game. That’s all there is to it. You don’t even have to pre-order one of the fancier versions of the game; even the Standard edition will unlock early access to the beta. I don’t know exactly how early, but I’d wager about two or three days. Don’t worry, though; everyone will get access to the beta at some point.
On top of that, if you have EA Play, you’ll get a ten-hour trial of Battlefield 2042 on October 15th, aka a week before launch. Also, you can sign on to be a tester in the upcoming Technical Playtest. You can sign up for that by following this link. Mind you, only one thousand people will be selected to participate, and I doubt you’ll get to see much of the game, but hey, it could be neat.
